Strathbogie Shire Council yesterday opened the new deep water boat ramp at the Goulburn River, providing better and safer access to the waterways for boating and fishing.

The new boat ramp will provide free 24-hour access to the river, including new car and trailer parking, and was officially opened with Katherine Grech, the Director of Better Boating Victoria.

The $494,795 project included a $100,000 contribution from Council, a $100,000 donation of the cost of the land from the Ryan family and a contribution of $294,795 from Department of Transport.

This comes after a recent announcement of the abolition of boat ramp fees at the Nagambie Lakes and Goulburn River, as part of the Labor Government’s investment in boating and fishing across the state.

Users of the Sevens Creeks Park and Apex Track will soon be able to mix up their exercise routines with works underway to install three exercise stations near the track.

Each station will have two pieces of exercise equipment, with equipment such as an elliptical trainer, sit-up bench, chest press and leg press.

The project has been made possible through the collaborative efforts of Strathbogie Shire Council, Euroa Community Action Group and the Euroa Memorial Oval Committee.

The stations will be situated over the Memorial Oval side of the Apex Track, creating a multi-use fitness trail for users.

Strathbogie Shire Council will join VicHealth in promoting its message to get kids walking, riding and scooting to school as part of the Walk to School program.

Every October, Walk to School encourages families to get active on the trip to and from school to help kids build healthy habits for life.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said VicHealth’s Walk to School program is a free, easy and fun way for kids to get active and build healthy habits.

“Strathbogie Shire Council is delighted to support Walk to School in our region to encourage more kids to be active on the way to and from school,” Mayor McClaren said.

“Our kids are healthier and happier when they’re active every day, and walking to school is a great way to get their activity in.

Last year we had over 350 local students walking, riding and scooting an impressive 7068 kilometres as part of VicHealth’s Walk to School program.

Peranbin Primary College in Strathbogie took out the second prize for highest participation rate in the North Eastern Region, second to Edi Upper Primary School, with an impressive 100% of students walking, riding and scooting to school every day.”

Acting VicHealth CEO, Dr Lyn Roberts AO said each year the Walk to School program continues to grow with more and more schools taking part with fantastic results.

“Walking, riding or scooting to and from school every day is an easy way to make physical activity part of kids’ daily life which is why our Walk to School program is so important,” Dr Roberts said.

“Last year more than 140,000 kids from over 750 schools across Victoria took part in Walk to School, travelling the equivalent distance of two return trips to the moon.”

Local schools who take part in Walk to School will be in the running to win some fantastic prizes, including a footy clinic at their school hosted by an AFL or AFLW player.
